Learning the Command Line, Manipulation 6.cp II, step 6/10 *stuck*


#1

Hi there, new to Codeacademy, and enjoying it, but stuck. I've been working on this for a couple of days and want to just reset the lesson, or find a solution.

$ cd home
bash: cd: home: No such file or directory
$ cd movies
bash: cd: movies: No such file or directory
$ cd ../movies
$ pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/movies
$ pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/movies
$ ls
action comedy drama genres.txt
$ cd/comedy
bash: cd/comedy: No such file or directory
$ cd movies/comedy

$ cd movies
bash: cd: movies: No such file or directory
$ cd ../movies
$ ls

$ pwd
/home/ccuser/workspace/movies
$ cd comedy/
$ ls
satire shrek.txt slapstick the-office.txt
$ cp * satire/
cp: omitting directory ‘satire’
cp: omitting directory ‘slapstick’
$ cd ./comedy
bash: cd: ./comedy: No such file or directory
$ cd ../comedy
$ cd ../ ../comedy

I've typed in the instructed code, but the little checkmark won't approve my access to the next steps. I guess there used to be a reset option under the 'help' button, but no longer?

I found a solution for this. The tutorial must be followed verbatim, or you could end up stuck. My mentor, Carrie Coxwell, also mentioned the cd ~ command, which is the absolute path back to home. Home is always a good place to start over.
